Mitt's $690 beauty session

Perhaps this news will put to bed the right-wing bleating about John Edwards’ $400 haircut and we can get on to real issues.  Mitt’s spending his dough on makeup consultants. It’s hard work staying beautiful, folks. (Raw Story):

The perception that Mitt Romney is some sort of pretty-boy was burnished earlier this week when reports emerged that he spent $300 in campaign funds for makeup “consulting” this year.

It turns out Romney has maintained an expensive beauty regimen for years.
A RAW STORY analysis of Romney’s campaign finance records during his time as Massachusetts governor shows he spent nearly $2,000 on makeup artists over four years. The personal-beautification spending was divided over six sessions to three separate companies. Individual makeup jobs ranged in price from $180 to $690.

…The Politico on Monday reported that Romney twice paid $150 to a California company that describes itself as “a mobile beauty team for hair, makeup and men’s grooming and spa services.”

Raw’s Nick Juliano also noted that the Edwards haircut was mentioned twice as often as Romney’s makeup services.
